"I had to do something about unnecessary hazards to life, unnecessary poverty. It was sort of up to me. this feeling...sprang out of a period of great confusion which overtakes all young people. One thing was perfectly clear...the circumstances of the life of the people of my generation was my business, and I ought to do something about it." -Frances Perkins, Secretary of Labor, 1933-1945 from her Oral History
"A splending, touching, effective job ... I hope the Frances Perkins film gets the widest possible circulation." Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.
